There was drama for third place Petrucci though. The Italian was coming round to complete his out-lap with 30 minutes remaining, but at the seriously quick Turn 14, the rear of his GP19 stepped out and spat Petrucci over the top. Luckily, the Ducati man was uninjured in the 200km/h crash and was able to come back out and finish 0.260 off Quartararo in P3. Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Alex Rins had a solid opening session, last season’s Dutch GP runner-up finished fourth, with Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda Idemitsu) completing the top five as the leading Honda. The Japanese rider was the first crasher of the weekend early in FP1.
